‘The Empty Man’ Trailer Drops Before Impending Release

The new horror feature film The Empty Man hopes to fill a lot of empty seats in movie theaters right before Halloween.

The Empty Man–a 20th Century Studios release based on the popular BOOM! Studios graphic novel series–will debut on the Silver Screen Oct. 23, as reported by comicbook.com. A new trailer and poster for the movie can be seen on this page.

The supernatural horror flick, as expressed on the poster, warns moviegoers: “The first night–you hear him. The second night–you see him. The third night–he finds you.”

Sounds like “he” means business.

The Empty Man, according to the official synopsis, starts out when a group of teenagers from a small Midwestern town “begin to mysteriously disappear. The locals believe it is the work of an urban legend known as The Empty Man.”

As a retired police officer starts to investigate the disappearances, “he discovers a secretive group and their attempts to summon a horrific, mystical entity. Soon, his life–and the lives of those close to him–are in grave danger.”

Director David Prior wrote the screenplay, a script that’s based on the graphic novel by Cullen Bunn and Vanesa R. Del Rey. The film–produced by Ross Richie and Stephen Christy–stars James Badge Dale, Marin Ireland, Stephen Root, Ron Canada, Robert Aramayo, Joel Courtney and Sasha Frolova.
